Today had been lovely, right up 'til the point where I realized about 4:30 that I had a scratchy throat. I've even been feeling energetic enough that I was going to try to go to my exercise class tonight, but now I'm not sure if I'm really up for it.

Ian and I did the grocery shopping this morning. The grocery store has Christmas trees, garlands, and wreaths up all over the place already. It's November 5, for crying out loud!

This afternoon, Corwin had his first Destination Imagination meeting after school today, so I didn't have to pick him up 'til 4:00 (as opposed to the usual 3:05). That was lovely for me, because Ian slept all the way up 'til 3:45. I literally heard him make a noise a few seconds before my phone alarm to remind me to pick up Corwin went off. I used naptime today to work on building my Lego Vampyre Hearse and got almost all the way done with it; just a little bit more to go. Hopefully I can knock it out this evening.

Corwin was really excited when I picked him up after his meeting, and he said he'd had a lot of fun. Destination Imagination is supposed to help the kids work on their creativity and problem solving skills. DI for K-2nd grade isn't competitive, but the kids get a project to work on and they'll do an "exhibition" sometime in the spring. Corwin said today they made up a story about Roy G Biv's birthday party, and that over the next few months they're going to be putting together a play that they'll perform for the exhibition.

The downside came when I was picking Corwin up, and the parent leaders of Corwin's team told me they were going to be meeting on Tuesdays from here on out. Corwin has gymnastics at 4:15 on Tuesdays, and we won't be able to get there on time if he's at school until 4:00 for DI. Not to mention having two extracurriculars crammed into one afternoon sounds like a recipe for an overtired kid. And on the personal inconvenience side -- Tuesday is preschool day for Ian, and I pick him up at 2:00. Ian has his nap (such as it is) at preschool on that day, so he'll lose the opportunity to sleep late (and I'll lose the extra quiet time). Ah well. I'll need to look into whether there's another gymnastics class Corwin can switch into; we may end up just switching back to the 4:30 karate class on Mondays that Corwin was in last year.

Okay, I need to run off and give Ian a bath now and start herding the kids in the general direction of bed. Cross your fingers that my scratchy throat is just a fluke and I'll be feeling better tomorrow!
